is not cool. >> let's talk about -- let's talk about appealing to latino voters. there's a new poll out today. back in 2008 mccain had 31% of latino vote. that was not as good as george w. bush in 2004 he had 44% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious little about him. the little they do know they don't like. he has begun to change his tone. ep needs to continue doing latino outreach and doing events, doing interviews, doing media, pouring money and resources into paid media and to outreach efforts. >> donna to that point, romney has actually moved closer to president obama on immigration issues just very recently saying he's not is going to rerocky the visas, deport young illegal immigrants under the new law here. does that present a problem to the president if he moves c
are latino. canvassing in colorado, a swing state where the latino vote is hugely important. now, some are disappointed that he has not done more to help the illegal immigrants that come across the border. a few find this election a hard choice. >> we know that there is only one candidate that supports any kind of immigration reform that is of any real value and of course that is obama. romney would turn back any progress we have made. >> a lot of republicans see the hispanic vote as a huge prize. what has gone wrong? when ronald reagan said that latinos were naturally republican, he met that they were aspirational and socially conservative. mitt romney seems to turn them off. he backed a law in arizona which some said was racial profiling. he called for a high-tech fence along the mexican border and struck a hard note talking about illegal immigrants. >> the answer is self deportation, people decide that they can do better work here because they don't have legal documentation. >> the campaign has put on a burst of speed, intensely targeting latinos, especially in swing states like col
that came out, cnn-orc poll. latino voters choice for the president. whopping 70% chose president obama compared with 26 terz for mitt romney. romney here is doing worse than john mccain did back in 2008 who got 31%. the latino vote. also worse than george w. bush in 2004 who got 44% of the latino. anna, to you. is there anything at this point that romney can do to get the latino support up? >> well, suzanne, i think praying on novina might help. look, he -- we had a tough primary on the republican side. i think mitt romney has been an unknown commodity to his hispani hispanics. he doesn't come from a border state like john mccain or george w. bush did. he has not done a great intense voter outreach with the latinos because he ran out of money after the primary. he -- let me just be absolutely truthful and give smu straight talk as john mccain would say. mitt romney dug himself into a hole with latinos during the primary. he said some things that are coming back to haunt him. he now needs to find a way to dig himself out of that hole. i think the only way he will do it is if he really c
and the president's kept in the race because of latino support in colorado as well. >> let's talk a little bit more, jonathan, about women in colorado and nevada, because the president has gone from double-digit leads to single-digit leads there, obviously still leading among women but you have a lot of attention being paid frankly because of things that people like mourdock has said, the war on women, do you think that will turn around? is the president going to expand his lead again? what's going on with the women vote in these key battleground states? >> that's an interesting question because i've been trying to figure that out as well. i mean, the republicans have handed the democrats in general and the president in particular plenty of material to show the contrast and the differences between the president and governor romney when it comes to women's issues and you remember from i believe it was the second debate when the president made the all-important pivot from talking about choice and women's health to economic issues. talking about how, you know, making contraception available to women i

strong of "roll call". >>> and president obama is showed with an overwhelming lead with the latino voters, in fact, 78% say they would vote for him if it was held today. the state only has six electoral votes, but 76% of people identifying as latino, it could be a window into the november results. joining me is john ralston, host of "ralston reports." so that is a big number, what do you think of president obama's support among the latino voters. >> well, i think there are a couple of things going on, the exit polls in nevada showed that barack obama won, but i think mitt romney got himself in trouble with the latino community with the positions he took running to the right in that primary. and now, that is hurting him here in nevada. also, you have to -- realize that the democrats here, especially the culinary union, which is heavily hispanic, has been registering voters at a remarkable clip the last couple of months. and while it is hard for me to believe the margin is that big, alex, it is pretty big. >> hey, john, are nevada's latino voters unique in some sort of way, that we can't ta
this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up
to the latest fox news latino poll 60% of latinos would pick the democratic ticket right now, 30% would choose the republican nominee. meanwhile one columnist explains how governor romney can avoid lights out tonight. he says and this is a quote, mitt romney must make americans understand in the clearest of terms how he'll create jobs. he needs to finally take his bain experience and turn it into a plus. rick sanchez wrote that column for fox news latino. he's also a fox news contributor. great to see you, rib. not only that poll that we just put up on the screen. the "wall street journal" came out with a poll, the president has a 50-point lead among latinos, why is that. >> the first thing is that's just nothing more than a huge opportunity that has been missed. ao eights a big fat fast ball right across the plate and it just seems like governor romney has not been able to hit out of park. here you have a block of voters. a lot of people don't know this. gregg. 34% of hispanics who arrive in the united states consider themselves conservative. that is higher than most americans who live in the
his very harsh position on immigration, a position that is quite anti-the interest of latinos in florida. >> in fact, the numbers are overwhelming for the president still. >> no one has been hurt in america by this president's economic policies more than hispanics. 15% unemployment. almost 50% of college graduates of hispanic origin can't get a job. jobs and the economy are the number one issue for hispanics, and frankly, they don't want four more years of this. >> would you concede that in the hispanic community, latino community, that there is a feeling that republicans are very harsh in their -- and that hurts the republican party? do you concede that? >> i think politics, frankly, between you and i, i think democrats have done a lot better job, and republicans have. this will be the last election that a republican will win the presidency unless generically speaking, the partyoes a better job -- >> but -- >> but mitt romney is doing a great job. mitt romney has gotten over 40% of hispanic vote in florida. that's plenty to win the state. he will hold on to that, and there wi
and getting the data from the state election offices. this is what she found. in colorado, a large latino population, this is how many new voters signed up as democrats in 2008 looking at the period from january to october. this is how many new voters signed up as republicans in the the same time period in 2008. a big advantage for the democrats. just colossal. that was 2008 in colorado. now look at what has happened in the same time span this year in 2012. democrats have improved their number some over even what they had in 2008. look at the republicans. the republicans in colorado, they improved their numbers a lot. the democrats have lost the colossal part of what had been their colossal advantage in new voter registration in colorado. let's go to iowa. look at this. from january to october, that sweet spot again in 2008, new democratic registrations outpaced republican registrations in iowa by almost 8 to 1. look at 2012. look at the difference. that's negative. look at those numbers. that's 0 in the middle. where did all the democrats go? the democrats have lost, not gained, lost alm
the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was a cushion shot in pool. is ohio but we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. is a reason -- i entered this election cycle believing that their word out three key states instead of dust florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list, and then if they are at the top, the next half-level down is where carolina. look, clearly governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. ohio is a place where he doesn't need a significant comeback, and i think fred's points are well taken, which is for a lot of voters the election start
sanchewas part of history four years ago, urging latinos to help make barack obama president. it's different this time around. harder. >> some people are still very excited and others say, i don't know. well, i haven't made up my mind. >> reporter: less hype about the obama campaign this time, she says, and less hope about the candidate. >> it's a little bit harder because sometimes some of them say, well, i don't know who to vote for, these two evils. >> reporter: latinos were 13% of the vote in battleground colorado four years ago. and any dip in their support for the president or a drop in turnout could shift this classic swing state. >> this is one of his songs that's so moving and so powerful. >> reporter: evangelicals are to mitt romney what latinos are to barack obama. white evangelicals made up 23% of colorado's vote in 2008. >> think about life, think about liberty, think about character. and then cast your ballot. >> reporter: this pastor adds a plug to vote to every subd's sermon. >> the most surprising thing is the frustration of many of them with both candidates and the frustrat
as of late show a strong trend towards mitt romney. host: what do you think about immigrants and the latino community? caller: they have always had a higher percentage of latino voters were voting for republicans than the other states. that is attributed to the elected leaders reaching out to the voters. historically they have had over 40% voting. president bush had over 50%. governor bush would get even 60% of the latino voters. this is not a typical state in terms of latina support. host: this story, immigration reform, the mitt romney softening stance putting of hard-liners. mitt romney, having to walk a fine line between latino voters and keeping his conservative base happy when it comes to cases like immigration. host: he can work on a bipartisan immigration bill that satisfies the conservatives. as the chairman of the american conservative union, i have a lot of input on the issue. basically, look, border security and law and order are key. conservative folks do not like the idea of the legal status in this country. -- illegal status in this country. the devil is in the details, of co
and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of democrgraphic changes. that's a reason no matter republican, democrat, no matter who you are, get out and vote. vote early if you can. if you can't make sure you get to the polls early on election day. that's the way this thing is going to get settled. >> okay, karen finny, always good to talk with you. >>> here's what we've been asking all of you all day. it comes on the heels of what i was discussing with karen. the popular vote versus the electoral vote. could it be a split election? here's what you had to say about it. rich mow net replies "can't help but think that high turnout in battle ground states may make popular vote versus electoral vote possible. advantage president. melvin tweets "unfortunately it could be. i also believe that indiana will go pbo again. one of these days indiana is going to matter." jim b writes "a popular ele
.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to have a comeback in ohio, it started la
that tends to lean republican. but when you look at latinos and young people, enthusiasm among young people down 20 points, enthusiasm among latinos, down 8 points from 2008. those are important voting blocs for the president. >> you've got it, and the deal is this, mitt romney's going to win seniors, 60% of seniors, something like that. he's going to win massively, and tear all going to go vote because they do, because they're good citizens, and they read, and they go vote. that's the deal. what barack obama did in 2008 was expanded the universe of potential democratic voters. he brought in a lot of first-time voters. the footprint of minority voters, the footprint of young voters was larger inside the electorate than usual. the problem with doing that is he promised them a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff in order to do that. and, of course, the reality of governance and the reality of what he was able to do and what he really wanted to do and what his priorities were didn't necessarily match up with the rhetoric of 2008. so they may be feeling a little disillusioned. the other thing is democ
in charlotte. dnc chairman said they had it without special interest money. another story -- latino voters. post parties see them as the decider in three key states. -- both parties see them as the decider in three key states. that is looking at latino voters and their role. .n campaign 2012 let us look at another clip. governor romney. [video clip] >> we are down to the final months of the president's term. as president obama surveys the waldorf banquet room, with everyone and white tie, you have to wonder what he is thinking. so little time. so much to redistribute. [laughter] and do not be surprised if the president mentions this evening in monthly jobs report that was a slight improvement in the numbers. he knows how to seize this moment. and has a compelling new campaign slogan. you are better off now than you were four weeks ago. host: that as gov. romney at last night's dinner. san diego, calif. on our line for democrats. caller: i am a 30-year retired teacher. and primarily i worked with a second language learners. and the first thing i learned as that the most effective way is thr
latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole
that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituencies. i would argue it's taken advantage of latinos for a long time.
the numbers it shows that key parts of president obama's coalition african-americans, latinos, are actually putting a high importance on the debates which actually kind of shows the challenge that mitt romney has to actually get his side as enthusiastic about it. >> a shrinking group of undecided voters, chris cizilla, what is the strategy of both sides to reach those people who are still undecided? >> you saw the clip you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober pol
